      Indians' Carlos Santana slugs 19th home run in win over Red Sox

      Indians first baseman Carlos Santana went 2 for 3 with a double and a solo homer in Saturday's 2-0 victory over the Red Sox. Santana posted his third two-hit outing in the last four games, and has four RBI over the first two games of the season-ending series against the Red Sox. Although he did suffer a drop in homers this season, Santana has now matched last season's 85 RBI and has crossed the plate 72 times, four more than his total in 2014.

      Indians 1B Carlos Santana hits grand slam in win

      Indians first baseman Carlos Santana went 1 for 4 with a grand slam home run in the Indians' win over the White Sox on Friday night. If you're only going to collect one hit, popping one over the fence with the bases loaded against a pitcher like Chris Sale is making the most of it. Santana now has 16 long ones and 72 RBI, but hasn't done much in the average department at .237 for the year. Most damaging from a fantasy perspective is the fact that he will lose catcher and third base eligibility next season.

      Indians' Carlos Santana records three hits in losing effort Thursday

      Indians first baseman Carlos Santana went 3 for 5 with a double and a run scored in an 8-4 loss to the Royals on Thursday. It's been a strange season for Santana as most numbers are on par with where they should be aside from the average. The power is a bit down, but his 11 steals should make up for that. The .237 average is lacking, but his .363 OBP is very good, as he ranks top-five in walks. Unfortunately, Santana is going to lose catcher and third base eligibility next season and that will drop his value significantly.

      Surging Indians 1B Carlos Santana goes yard Saturday

His .223 average is at its highest point in nearly a month.

      Indians bench 1B Carlos Santana in Pittsburgh

      Monumental struggles at the plate and a battle in a National League park have Indians first baseman Carlos Santana out of the lineup Friday night in Pittsburgh. Brandon Moss will play the position instead. Santana continues to confound with his keen eye and inability to make consistent solid contact. He ranks second in the American League with 54 walks, yet is batting just .211 with 55 strikeouts in 256 at-bats.

      Francona sends plea for Indians 1B Carlos Santana to find stroke

      Struggling Indians first baseman Carlos Santana is the subject of a plea from Terry Francona, who was hoping for far more production. Santana has endured a long first-half slump for the second straight season. He was hitless in the Sunday doubleheader in weakening his average to .211. It has not been lower all season. "It's kind of confounding," Francona told "He's a better hitter than what he's shown. We all know that. I don't think I'm overstating it. We desperately need him. He's kind of that connector because he's a switch-hitter and he can be right in the middle and, with his on-base skills, there's just so much he can do when he's going more towards himself than what's been happening." Santana was at least leading the American League in walks, which has resulted in a .372 on-base percentage. But even those have dried up - he has just two in the last 10 games.
